39 Roses For Each Year
--by mindyjourney, posted Jul 5, 2016
So many smiles and hugs and stories about recipient's anniversaries we shared over the simple beauty of a colorful rose; the joy (and heartbreak too -- some partners gone) to a deeper connect of LOVE.
From the library to the grocery store parking lot, from the restaurant (where I went back and gave our server another rose, because she was so very dear) to the drive-thru coffee shack...each rose my husband and I gave put put a new smile in our hearts.
I'm leaving two roses on our front porch tonight (giving out these many roses is exhausting!), so my niece can pick them up on her way to work, and give one to co-worker too.
My husband started the tradition of a rose for every year of our marriage and although we got off easy the first years, we now have quite the floral arrangement!
And each rose given was received with anniversary wishes for us! What a blessing, my friends, almost 39 times over (a few more left to give tomorrow)!
